Today, adidas Basketball officially introduces the D Howard 4, an all-new signature shoe created for 7-time All-Star Dwight Howard. Built for speed and power, the D Howard 4 features a comfortable and supportive upper combined with Crazyquick technology elements in the outsole.
The shoe's spiral wave upper was inspired by Dwight's playing style and how he circles the paint protecting the rim by blocking shots and grabbing rebounds. The bright palette of this colorway was selected to match Dwight's personality, while the tongue and 3-Stripes both feature a chrome treatment to standout on-court.
Dwight will wear this Yellow/Gold-Blue colorway as he tours Asia during the Dwight Howard Tour taking place August 16-26 in Seoul, South Korea; Taipei, Taiwan; Hong Kong and Hangzhou, Chengdu and Beijing, China.
The D Howard 4 will launch at adidas.com on Friday, November 1 in three colorways, with two more to follow in December.
